Clara Parked has outdone herself with this collection of essays. The varying viewpoints were interesting to hear. Even if I didn't agree overall with a stated philosophy, there were still points within that I identified with. Behold the power of yarn to unite. Franklin Habit's essay was particularly poignant and personal. That one in particular will stick with me for a while.
I strongly believe that the publisher has done everyone (readers, listeners, essayists, and editor) an enormous disservice by not having Clara Parkes narrate this anthology. Two of the three narrators are wooden and stilted, clearly having a complete lack of fiber in their souls. The writing is strong enough to overcome these deficits but the voice of the writers could have been so much more. I still encourage knitters to give a listen anyway. It's like knitting an excellent yarn base with a dye job not quite equal to it. And let's face it, that still beats a beautiful dye on a crappy base any day.
